Walk on the Walled Side


This is a portion of the city walls close to the Red Tower. The Walls are a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade 1 listed building. Defensive walls were first built around York in Roman times, although the walls that still surround the city today date mainly from the 13th century. It is still possible to walk on almost two miles of the remaining walls including this section.
